Anyone who has ever taken their son to a big league baseball game can relate. We all watched the footage as Rangers fan Shannon Stone fell trying to catch a ball for his six-year-old son Cooper. Heartbreaking beyond belief……..
Now is your chance to help. Diane Fourton of Pecan Lodge and Jill Bergus of Lockhart Smokehouse, aka: the First Ladies of Dallas BBQ, have joined forces to help the Stone family. This will be a can’t miss event for hardcore Dallas BBQ fanatics and will be held at Dallas Farmer’s Market shed #2 on Sunday, August 14, 2011, starting at 6:30 pm.
Not only will you be able to eat bbq from both Pecan Lodge & Lockhart Smokehouse at the same time, they’ll be bands & beverages and much more. BTW, did I mention the amazing auction?
Here’s the official word from Diane & Jill:
“We cooked up the idea for this fundraiser. Your ticket price includes a BBQ dinner, drinks, music and live auction. We have great items on the block that will be announced soon…..
Co- hosted by Pecan Lodge Catering & Lockhart, other sponsors include Dallas Farmers Market, Texas BBQ Posse, Il Cane Rosso, Edible DFW, Crave DFW, Deep Eddy Vodka and US Foods.”
This historic event is limited to the first 200 folks to sign up. Click here to get tickets to the event.
Editors note: This photo taken from a Facebook page dedicated to Shannon Stone, pictured with his son Cooper at the Brownwood Fire Dept., where Stone worked. The photo was posted by a friend with the quote, “How Shannon needs to be remembered, as a father and a hero. He’s so much more than just the “guy who died at the Ranger game.”
